110: Your Urban Legends XVII: Brad Pitt’s Body, Falcon’s Mind
Disclosure: We might have been creepy kids as children. We wanted to let you know because it’s the creepy cool LAW. We also learn not to trust your house ghosts, talk about spooky friendship goals, the weirdest summer trip EVER, and why “lock ins” are just the creepiest form of sleep over.   Amanda recommended this week the podcast, Working Sunday!   Sponsors - Lola, providers of organic cotton tampons, pads, liners and more.
